Histology is the microscopic study of tissues and cells, with its techniques providing evidence and visual images of biological and physical science. 

We provide training and access to specialised microscopy systems for tissue preparation, slide production, and histo-chemical staining to scientists and students across South East Queensland. 

The Histology Facility is managed and operated by Dr Darryl Whitehead who is available for consultation and advice on histology and microscopy related issues. The facility is also staffed by four highly qualified Histology Assistants, who specialise in specific areas of the field of Histology.
